Beth Judah Temple Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Beth Judah Temple will be showcasing the founders and history of the synagogue during a three-day celebration of its 100th anniversary, October 24 to 26.

The only active Jewish congregation in Cape May County, NJ, Beth Judah has planned a variety of exciting events to commemorate its centennial milestone, including presentation of a strategic plan outlining its goals and plans for the future.

October 24 will include Friday night services followed by a catered dinner in the synagogue's Social Hall.

October 25 includes Saturday services and a catered lunch in the Social Hall during which founding members of the synagogue and others who have contributed through the years will be honored.

At 2 pm, dignitaries of Cape May County, guests and members of the congregation are invited to the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the synagogue's 100th anniversary and rededication. A block party will follow with a Klezmer Band, The Hester Street Troupe, performing at the event.

Saturday evening will include a catered dinner with a concert featuring Joshua Nelson, nicknamed "the prince of kosher gospel" because of his dual heritage as a Jewish African-American.

On Sunday, October 26, a catered morning brunch will be served, followed by presentation of Beth Judah's action plan.

Tickets are required for all of the events and meals. For information call Beth Judah Temple at 609-522-7541 or email bethjudahtemple@yahoo.com.
